Why Give


Every gift is an investment in our community. 

People who give to health care know how it makes an immediate and lasting difference - how it changes lives, supports families, and is an investment in the well-being of their community…both now and in the future. People who give to Taos Health Systems and Holy Cross Hospital recognize the consistency of quality and innovation in the care received.  They give because they trust our work. They trust our compassion. They trust our stewardship of their investment.

For more than three-quarters-of-a-century, Holy Cross Hospital, and now Taos Health Systems, has consistently provided the best heath care in the region; care delivered with heart.  Since our beginning in 1936, no one gets turned awayEach year we provide almost $10 million dollars’ worth of care for people who have no insurance and don’t qualify for any government health program.  So, we must depend on the generosity of our community to help us help those in need.

Every gift is important, because the people we serve are important.

To meet these and other health care demands, people support every aspect of this organization through small and large gifts that make a real and lasting difference.  Their philanthropy represents all types of giving for all kinds of personal reasons.  And, because donating is so very personal, you choose how to make your “investment” and where you want it to be used.  In fact, Taos Health Systems has adopted a Donor Bill of Rights that you should know about.

Every gift builds an exciting future for healthcare in northern New Mexico. 

Taos Health Systems is leading the way for expansive, quality healthcare for every family and individual in our region.  Striving to become the model rural healthcare system for the United States can be a reality that is in our reach over the next several years - but it takes vision and investment to achieve such a high goal of more health services, greater access to excellent care, more healthcare industry jobs and education opportunities. 

So, when you give, you are a part of a special group of visionaries that are helping Taos Health Systems continue to provide exceptional healthcare and to be a vital public health and economic "driver" for our community's current and future well-being. 

Please make a gift today and invest in our community!
